The not quite end of the season party!

After Wednesday night's heroics in Amsterdam which will no doubt inspire a magnificent celebratory atmosphere we have a game which might have ended our season, but will now be followed in three weeks' time by (hopefully) victory in Madrid against Everton's local rivals from across Stanley Park.

We all know that unless we lose this game and Arsenal win at Burnley with an eight goal swing in Arsenal's favour from the two games we will be gracing the Champions League again next season. Of course, if we beat Liverpool we would be in Pot 1 for the group phase next season! We need to take one step at a time and make sure that nothing stupid happens tomorrow.

Spurs' league form on this run-in has been notoriously awful, and last week's defeat at Bournemouth didn't help with the two sendings-off which mean we will not see Son or Foyth in the Spurs shirt tomorrow. We've lost three of our last 6 whilst Everton have won 4, drawn 1 and lost just 1. Everton had harboured hopes of finishing seventh which would have given them at least a chance of a place in Europe should Manchester City win next week's FA Cup Final. Wolves have secured seventh now, but there is prize money at stake for every place in the Premier League and Marco Silva's side will be keen to try and take advantage of a Spurs side definitely weakened by injuries and possibly by fatigue following that marvellous second half performance against Ajax.

Apart from those suspensions, Spurs will still be missing Kane, Winks, and Davinson Sanchez. Sanchez missed the Ajax game, but like Kane made the trip and joined in the post-match onfield celebrations. Sanchez picked up a thigh injury last week, but is sure to be available in Madrid. Jan Vertonghen is also missing, having suffered a foot injury which he carried in the second half on Wednesday night. He was hobbling after the game and could not fully participate in those joyous scenes.

There is more worry for Spurs as Victor Wanyama (thigh) and Danny Rose (hamstring) are also being assessed. There was always going to be a need for rest for some of the players, so it is good news that Serge Aurier is available. Eric Dier also stayed on the bench on Wednesday, and will surely start tomorrow.

A possible team is:- Gazzaniga; Aurier, Alderweireld, Davies, Walker-Peters; Sissoko, Dier; Eriksen, Dele, Lamela; Lucas Moura. I'd like to see Llorente get on the pitch for some worthy acclaim after his personal best performance in a Spurs shirt in Wednesday's second half.

Everton have their problems too with Dominic Calvert-Lewin ruled out after suffering a knock in training. Richarlison will be a big miss as he sits out the game with a rib injury and Seamus Coleman faces a late test. Former Spur Gylfi Sigurdsson has been in great form recently, and left back Lucas Digne has been impactive, having a long throw and also a decent shot on him!

Midfielder Andre Gomes, like Digne, is a player obtained by The "Toffees" from Barcelona but he is on loan and might be a player for Spurs to look at. Gomes has just finished serving a three match ban after he accepted a violent conduct charge following a stamp upon Fulham's Mitrovic in the final moments of Everton's 2-0 defeat. Match referee Lee Probert had not spotted the infringement.

Do you remember what happened the last time Spurs played Marco Silva's side? We won 6-2 with a magnificent pre-Christmas performance which featured two goals by Son and Harry Kane. Dele and Eriksen, who we should see tomorrow, also scored. That was a second consecutive four goal win for us, as last year at Wembley, we beat them 4-0!. Son, Kane (2) and Eriksen scored our goals. It was a day when Harry achieved several records. Firstly, he equalled, then beat Teddy Sheringham’s Premier League goal scoring record of 97 for Spurs. Secondly, he became only the third Premier League player to score 20 or more league goals in four or more seasons. (The others were Shearer and Henry). Thirdly, he was the first Spurs player since Jimmy Greaves to score that number of goals in four consecutive seasons for Spurs. Only injury has prevented Harry from doing the same this season.

It is nearly 6 1/2 years since Everton last managed a win over Tottenham. That was a 2-1 home win. We have now played "The Toffees" 12 times without being beaten, and have won the last four games with an aggregate score of 16-7! Spurs will be seeking their 100th Premier League point against Everton with a win in this game. We have won more points against Everton than against any other Premier League team

Do you remember what happened the last time we played a Marco Silva side on the last day of the season? We beat relegated Hull 7-1!. Harry got three that day to follow the four he got at Leicester earlier in the last week of the 2016-17 season. Leicester could do us a favour by getting a result at home to Chelsea, which I think is quite likely, so if we do manage a win tomorrow we could still regain third place, which would be a fourth consecutive top three place. I'm plumping for a 2-0 Spurs win. Let's have a party!

Tomorrow's match referee will be Andre Marriner. He will become the man we have seen most in the middle this season, having been in charge of 5 of our previous games. His last game with Spurs was the historic first official game at the new stadium when we beat Crystal Palace 2-0. Mr Marriner last refereed a Spurs v Everton game in April 2013 when we drew 2-2. Gylfi Sigurdsson scored OUR late equaliser in that game!

· "It was Twenty Years ago today!" - Our last game of the 1998-99 season saw us lose 2-1 at Old Trafford. Of course that was the season when Spurs prevented United from winning a quadruple. Could we win the one trophy that might elude Manchester City this year?
